Okay, I have been experimenting on GEM w/modern resources. I chose Rome w/Augustus Caesar. This map also has about 36 total civs. I'm also playing Noble Marathon.
In my latest game at around 1670 BC, My juggernaut has 5 cities. I have Stonehenge, great wall, pyramids and the recently completely Temple of Artemis. I have gotten BW, Masonry, Agr (Hut), Mysticism, Masonry, and Polytheism. I started Mono (I think I can get Judaism).
I have started Axemen. I have most of the french influence gone from my western city since the borders popped before the GW was Built. they are probably my first target.
on the other side, the Hungarians are a big problem. Probably looking at a second front. Budapest's culture is seeping into the eastern cities borders at the Great Wall.
I'm trying to figure out how I could of Played out this scenario better. I guess I'm hammer builder who wants to use the Legions as that hammer. I know I have in Rome's BFG copper, Iron, Stone, Marble, wine, cattle, wheat, fish. The map is giant with historically resources. So, I want to know what might be the best strategy to use with Augustus, or change him out for Julius.
